It is because the connection speed you have is not fast enough to play full speed videos. The simple answer is to start the video, then immediately pause it and let the amount downloaded reach a reasonable point so that you can start playing it again without the skipping - it's essentially 'buffering' the video. As a long-term fix, we would need to know a bit more about your set-up: type of internet connection; expected speed; the hardware you are using (laptop or desktop), type of modem/router; which browser you use etc. - as much info as possible.

Sometimes it can just be that the server is overloaded at the time.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
